“Cheapside has become one of The City of London’s most prestigious shopping destinations, offering visitors a fusion of contemporary shops and restaurants –transforming the area into a seven day destination. No other shopping, business and visitor location can compare with Cheapside, set against a backdrop of one of the most historic parts of London and surrounded by world-famous landmarks.” – Cheapside Business Alliance
Once a medieval trading market, Cheapside has transformed into a first class retail location. This retail revolution represents a major business opportunity, anchored by two major retail hubs – One New Change and Royal Exchange.
In recent times, Cheapside has seen an unprecedented level of redevelopment which has not only changed the face of the local retail, and leisure offer but it is fast becoming the destination of choice for even more high profile corporates, investors and developers. This demonstrates the area is a prime location in London as a unique place to do business.
The City of London Corporation in partnership with the Cheapside Business Alliance (CBA) have developed a Business Alliance Proposal which sets out how the business community will work together on a number of projects. Together with my fellow Councillors and Alderman I actively support the CBA as a way to continue to invest in the Cheap and keep it a vibrant and attractive place for City workers, businesses, visitors and residents.
